Unable to reach an agreement on a contract restructure for the 25-year-old All-Pro defensive back, the Cardinals released Tyrann Mathieu on Wednesday. Arizona had until today to decide whether they wanted to pick up the option for Mathieu guaranteeing the ball-hawking safety $19 million over the next two seasons.

Unfortunately, good things in the National Football League must come to an end in some occasions, and after failing to figure out a way to re-do his current deal, Arizona decided on Wednesday to move on from their defensive superstar with a release.

He was asked by the Cardinals to take a pay cut on Thursday but declined. He was named a first-team All-Pro and to the Pro Bowl that season. He was also set to count for $14.1 million against the salary cap over each of the next three seasons, per Over the Cap. Whatever Mathieu could've given Arizona on the field, it was unlikely to alter the team's trajectory in 2018.

Whatever the cost, the Dallas Cowboys would be wise to pursue safety Tyrann Mathieu in the coming days.

"It's a gamble and I'm taking all bets... if I lose I vow to make it all back", Mathieu tweeted. With the amount of talent that the Cardinals have at the safety position, it made sense to move on from the veteran.

Study finds smoking linked with increased risk of hearing loss
The researchers also found that the increased risk of hearing loss decreased within five years after quitting smoking. It is not acceptable to require vapers to share the same outdoor space as smokers, or to ban e-cigarette use.

The "Honey Badger" is leaving the desert. Mathieu only appeared in 10 games the following season and finished with a career-low 35 tackles.

His rookie season ended prematurely when he tore the LCL and ACL in his left knee.

Mathieu has spent the past five seasons as a member of the Cardinals. The New York Giants are considered a team to "keep an eye on" as the Honey Badger tests the free agent market, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

In his five-year career in Arizona, Mathieu has 281 tackles and 11 interceptions in 57 appearances.
